I rarely eat fast food except when traveling. And I never have it delivered. I think that a lot of people who are paying other people to cook for them and deliver the food can’t really afford it.
Heading back to CA this afternoon, with hopes to get home tomorrow night. Probably stay somewhere in Utah tonight.
What makes Hamas worse. Douglas Murray made this point recently to Piers Morgan.
Of course, some TDS sufferers think that Trump is worse than Hitler. Though “sufferers” may be the wrong word. They don’t seem to suffer from it; they make us suffer from it.
It was a great way to end an era. There will likely never again be a Michigan-Ohio State game with as much on the line as this one, and it may be that it will no longer be the last game in the regular season, with the new additions to the conference. It looks like this could be a legendary year for the Wolverines. But they have to beat Iowa next week, and then see how the seeds turn out for the playoffs.
Eric Berger judges it a huge success.
I’m sure they learned a hell of a lot from it, which is the purpose of a test flight. The only failed test is one from which you learn nothing.
Per some of the stupid comments, the notion that Elon is a white supremacist is lunacy, but there is a lot of lunacy in the world these days.

More thoughts from Eric, a couple hours after the first column: ” I no longer have any regrets about missing Apollo. I am thrilled to be alive at this very moment in human history.”
I would trade having missed Apollo to be twenty years younger, but it’s not an option. Fortunately, I’ve also almost made it to the the point at which I may be able to live a lot longer, and see a lot more happen.
The history that few know.
It’s not surprising that modern-day “liberals” are descendants of the Puritans. They’ve simply found a new form of witch.
Not in just Italy, but the Dutch are fighting back against the climate/globalist lunacy.

Can Europe become western again?
Let’s have some actual “Truthsgiving” to celebrate the holiday.
Conquest without morality was the rule of all peoples and nations until a couple of hundred years ago. Only in the very recent past has morality become a major consideration in warfare.
And the people most responsible for adding moral considerations to the law of conquest were…Europeans.
People pushing the Victim Narrative pretend that their ancestors were morally superior to their conquerors. In fact, they were not. Their ancestors conquered everyone they could conquer. The Commanche Empire conquered other Indian tribes, which is why Indian tribes allied with American government to fight the Commanches.
If Indians had advanced shipbuilding, navigation, and steel-working, they would have conquered Europe.
Native Americans’ ancestors did not refuse to do this because they were more moral. They didn’t do it because they simply couldn’t do it. They were not superior in morality; they were simply inferior in technology.
And all of this endless bullshit whining about generations-old conquests is just a nasty cope.
You’ve heard of “Victor’s Justice,” in which the winner of a war can vindictively set the terms for peace…? Well we live now in an age of Loser’s Justice, when the losers of the war can, somehow, endlessly torment the great-great-great-granchildren of the winners of their ancestors having won in war.
And we’re sick of it, and we’re done with it. We never point this out, because we don’t want to upset people who are clearly insecure about their ancestors’ failures. Who wants to pick on the fat kid?
We need to decolonize academia, big business, and Hollywood, of leftist insanity.
Revamp education to end the cultural rot.
A brief history of settler/colonialism. TL;DR: Everyone did it.
I was thinking exactly the same thing when I heard this story on Fox last night. This is just (typical) classic projection from the Left, accusing normal people of what both what they are doing and plan to do. There is much to dislike about Trump, but accusations coming against him from the TDS sufferers are…well, deranged.
We’re driving to Colorado for Thanksgiving, so not much posting before Wednesday. Meanwhile, if you have a subscription, I’m quoted in the Sunday edition of the Times of London. The subject is the race between Jeff’s tortoise and Elon’s hare.
[Update a while later, before hitting the road]
This is the quote from me: “‘It appears Bezos is finally getting serious,’ said Rand Simberg, a space industry consultant. ‘To this point, Blue Origin has looked more like a hobby. Jeff saw himself as the turtle to Elon’s hare — never realising that Elon was really the Duracell Bunny.'”
I actually said “Energizer,” but whatev.
